Environmentalists are investigating the sudden surge of thousands of frogs that converged on to the Moratuwa area earlier this morning sending panic among the residents.
Jagath Gunawardene, with the Centre for Environmental Studies said that this was perhaps the first such recorded incident in the country and may have occurred owing to possible climatic changes, but however the issue needs to be investigated further.
“Such cases have been recorded in other tropical countries mainly in the African region”, he added. The frogs which entered homes and were seen on the streets in large numbers had vanished shortly before dusk. “However there is a possibility that they could return to the same area at night fall”, Mr. Gunawardene added.
But this is a Precedent from China….
On 5th of May 2008, Many Chinese locals noticed thousands of frogs on the move. They were seen traveling without fear of traffic as they crossed streets in mass floods.
Many Chinese sensed the migration as a bad omen of a coming natural disaster, but the Chinese government told them that it was just a natural migration for the purpose of propagation. This calmed the people and no one took the omen very seriously.
On Monday, 12th of May, at about 2:45pm, central China region recorded a 7.8-magnitude quake which occured near Wenchuan County, Sichuan province, that killed nearly 10,000 people. As for the Frogs and their omen, Chinese scientists stated animals have much better sense than human on detecting the natural disasters like this.
